According to the bank document, the proposed project interventions will introduce catchment level hydrological assessments that incorporate future climate change projections to assess water availability and identify appropriate investments for upper catchment area treatments, water harvesting, rehabilitation of irrigation systems and reduced flood damage. Once water availability is assessed in a river basin, watersheds, sub-watersheds, cascades and individual tanks, then technical designs will be carried out for the tank irrigation systems, which consist of watershed catchment area, tank headworks, canal system and agriculture production area. The water stored in rehabilitated tanks will be used to commence CSA activities. Management of irrigation schemes will be enhanced through improved capacity of FOs. The project would support the identification, demonstration and adoption of technologies to both improve water use efficiency and enable farmers to diversify their production and move into higher value crops. Finally, support would be provided to enable farmers to have improved market access."
The project will implement in eleven administrative districts include Kilinochchi, Mullaitivu, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Puttalam, Kurunegala, Trincomalee, Batticaloa, Ampara, Hambantota and Moneragala.
